After a decade of experience in tourism industry within Thailand and neighboring countries, Oriental Escape’s founder, owner and current managing director have established the company in 2005. It was one example of a one-man company where the founder was responsible for the whole operating process and the back-office paper works. Oriental Escape’s office then is not more or less a home office where the MD and the co-founder operated themselves on all chords and tasks. This enabled them to experience and understand the whole process and all functions of the company.
Mission statement from MD
Our managing director and the company’s founder had a simple mission statement in his mind on the establishing of Oriental Escape, yet it took him full efforts and attentions to accomplished. It was to provide the seamless travel services for Thailand visitors to experience the best things this country has to offer while supporting the local business for the beneficial aspects of all parties associated with our company.
Thailand is known and recognized throughout the world for its appealing beauty and friendly people, but there were still some barriers that make it not-as-easy to travel and visit such as language and transportation modes. These difficulties make any visit less pleasant and Oriental Escape were here to basically make the tourist’s travel easier and simpler. It was to ensure that Thailand’s best part will be securely kept in the memory of our clients. It was to ensure that their time in Thailand will be pure, enjoyable and easy. It was to ensure that the difficult and fuzzy parts of traveling were well taken care of in a well-organized manner. Oriental Escape were all in and up to it.

The movement of the staff reflects the low turnover rate as we are working as friends and as a family. The resignation is rare and, when it happens, such ex-staff still comes back to visit regularly. We are the close notch and we firmly work and solve any problems in as one team.
Our outfield staffs are in the huge team to be able to handle various services and products we are offering, but they were all carefully selected and the size is never getting too large for the management to handle.
